The idea for Leadership Johns Creek originated in January 2009, just two years after the city of Johns Creek was formed. Ron Jones, Financial Advisor & Franchise Owner of Ameriprise Financial - and a graduate of Leadership El Paso - spearheaded the effort along with a group of members of the Johns Creek Chamber of Commerce.

After collaborating with other Leadership Programs across the country and assessing the needs of the City of Johns Creek leaders and staff, Leadership Johns Creek was created.  Leadership Johns Creek has graduated 108 participants since its inaugural class in 2010.

Leadership Johns Creek operates as a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation.
